THE VILLA Carcassonne :
an artist’s nest at the foot of the ramparts
An artist’s house …
Our house, once occupied by the painter and sculptor Eugène Pech, is less than 400 meters from the main entrance to the Medieval City and the town center, called here “La Bastide”. Its 320m² are spread over two levels to which are added outbuildings, one of which was Eugène’s creation studio. Here and there you will find some subtle traces of its passage: the sculpted fireplace in the breakfast room, the mosaics in the Cannelle bathroom, small sculptures in the garden. Its artistic history is presented to you in a book available at the library corner.
… over 140 years old.
Built in 1880, renovated in 2008 to welcome visitors by offering them all the comfort necessary for a pleasant stay, it was sold in November 2016 to our little family. Little by little, we reclaimed the place, with work to develop the unsuitable private living area, then with the replacement of the 25 original frames, a complete renovation of the face. Each bedroom and bathroom have been renovated, equipped and decorated. The house has become more comfortable with the addition of air conditioning, theinsulation of the attic and recently a complete rehabilitation of the roof and gutters.
